In this paper, we study the probability of occurrence of phase portraits in the set of random planar homogeneous polynomial vector fields, of degree n. In particular, for n= 1, 2, 3, we give the complete solution of the problem; that is, we either give the exact value of each probability of occurrence or we estimate it by using the Monte Carlo method. Remarkably is that all but two of these phase portraits are characterized by the index at the origin and by the number of invariant straight lines through this point.
